(Late) Fall vs. Spring Photos
Normally, Realtors wait for the trees to open, lawns to green up, etc. to take home photos.
All that color is more flattering than brown, leaf-less trees and landscaping.
When in-season foliage obscures the home (or, at least some angles).
No More Garage Shots
Then, it can actually be more flattering to photograph the home once all the leaves are down.
That’s especially true when the garage figures prominently in the only unobstructed, front exterior shot of the home.
P.S.: For more expensive homes on impressive (or elevated) lots, it can make sense to use drones to take aerial photos.
Also: note in the two photos above — the one tree with green leaves in the top photo is the only tree with remaining (now-red) leaves in the lower one.
